Summer Shoreline Cleanup
Saturday, July 22, 10:00am – 1:30pm
Weather and tides push trash to the north side of Commencement Bay and onto local beaches, were it can harm wildlife and people alike. Lend a hand by joining CHB staff to remove plastic and other debris before it can impact the health of our waters! We’ll provide the gloves, supplies and refreshments, so you’ll just need sturdy shoes. This event is family friendly.
Please sign up by July 19th! If you have questions, please contact Ryan Cruz at email@example.com.
Make Your Mark – Stormdrain Marking
Saturday, August 26, 9:00am – 12:00pm
Did you know that water flowing from storm drains empties directly into our rivers, lakes and Puget Sound? This water is not treated, and it carries with it pollution from the streets and cities. Help keep Tacoma’s waters clean by volunteering to glue storm drain markers to curbs with the “No Dumping, Drains to Puget Sound” message.
This project is sponsored by Citizens for a Healthy Bay and the City of Tacoma.
Please sign up by August 17! If you have questions, please contact Jeanine Riss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
